Awhile back I had two places on my back and one on my breast that looked like something had bit me. They were red,knotty and itchy. I also had a red,itchy place behind my ear. Pharmacist said I probably had an allergic reaction to something and recommended a cream for it. The place behind my ear is completely better. The places on my back and breast are not red,knotty or itchy now,but spots where they were want go away. Any comments or advice?

I would just keep a watch on them, watch for any changes. I had what I thought was a bite on my breast years ago, it was a raised red knot that itched... Then the itching stopped and the knot seemed to have gotten smaller and was no longer a problem for a few weeks then BOOM! I had a big ole boil there. That was the first boil I ever had but it seemed odd to me in how it came, settled in and rested before it did the full flare up.
